Well it has been rumored that a price drop would occur but never a comment as to by how much or when this would take place. I'm just saying that I'm stoked as to how much and how soon they have been decreased.
I just noticed today that the place where I normally buy all my components from - canadacomputers.com - has reduced prices on all the Core 2 Duo processors DRASTICALLY. The e6600 has dropped to $291.99 CDN and even more amazing is the Q6600 Quad Core processor is now $673.99 there. Just thought I'd let anyone know who is in the market for a new CPU that now is a good time as it seems most retailers have slashed prices significantly. I'm sure this is probably the same at all major retailers so check it out, I'm gonna get mine today now that it's so cheap.
Hey all,

Just got my new mouse in that I ordered online a few days ago and wanted to give the forum a heads-up. If anyone is looking for a new mouse and maybe not wanting to go with the typical Razer or Logitech for gaming, I ordered the OCZ Equalizer Laser Gaming Mouse and it is amazing. For anyone who hasn't heard of it, check it out.

Here it is.

I've used some other Logitech and one of the first Razer's and this is my favorite mouse I've ever owned. You can change DPI levels on the fly and its also got a cool "Triple Threat" button. I must admit I find it kind of cheap to be able to fire 3 times with one click and haven't tried it gaming yet but it does come in handy when just clicking around in Windows, as it acts as a "double click".

Anywho I just wanted to share. The mouse is great and the price is low so I would say to anyone looking for a new high-end gaming mouse - this should be a serious consideration.

Oh and since I'm a huge fan of OCZ as a whole, I can't forget to mention that this thing has a 6 year Warranty as well, another reason I decided to go with it over any other brand.
I am looking at getting the Thermaltake Toughpower W0131RU 850W ATX and wanted to know if it will fit and if its a good choice for the Thermaltake VA8003BWS Armor Super Tower case black w/ 25cm fan side panel? In looking at pics it seems like the dimensions of the PSU wont fit the case, does anyone know for sure? Thanks
I am looking at buying new ram for my build by OCZ.

The RAM is DDR2 PC2-8500 2GB (2x1024MB) SLI-Ready Edition Dual Channel Kit.

I just wanted some feedback from you guys before I took the plunge and purchased. It's a little pricey but I think it should make for some killer RAM, only I haven't ever used OCZ before. Any thoughts?
Hey there,

OK so it looks like the time has come. I have gotten almost all my components together and am almost ready to get this beast up and running. My questions is this - I have never BUILT a PC per say, although I have modded and tinkered around with them for years now. I have a general idea and an above average knowledge of what I am doing but as all these parts are expensive as hell, I don't want to make a mistake. I was curious if anyone here has seen or posted a guide themselves that guides someone through building a PC step-by-step. I have seen a few but they are YEARS old now and way out dated. If anyone has any up to date links or anything they could share so I can ensure that I am doing things not only correctly, but in the right order, I would be very greatful!

Thanks!

P.S. I posted this in another thread also, just wasn't sure where it should be!

Wow, that seriously stinks. You'd think they'd license it for at least 2 installs for households running multiple systems.
I am buying an OEM version of Vista Ultimate from canadacomputers.com

Link to site with product

Now my question is this. I am building a PC for my girlfriend the same time as I am building my own, so we will both be without OS'. Is it possible to use one copy of Vista Ultimate (OEM) for multiple installs? I don't want to buy two copy's for two machines running in the same household. Anyone know if I can save a little money and buy one copy and install on two computers? Thanks in advance.
I was looking at RAM offered by OCZ which is SLI ready. The only question I have is it says only motherboards with "custom made BIOS" can detect the RAM and operate properly.

I am getting the ASUS Striker Extreme Motherboard. The link for the RAM is here....

RAM

Could anyone tell me if that RAM and this motherboard below are compatable?

THANKS IN ADVANCE!
